Minnesota’s climate is changing, and it's already affecting our health, our environment, and our economy, especially agriculture. MPCA works with many partners to reduce Minnesota’s contribution to causing global climate change. MPCA staff gathers and reports greenhouse gas emission data, assesses trends, analyzes policies, and factors greenhouse gas emissions into permits as required by federal law. In addition, MPCA leads Minnesota’s statewide Interagency Climate Adaptation Team, and has an internal Climate Adaptation Team working on strategies to help build resilience to climate change impacts.
